  8. New CR-Z Looks Great

    Honda Insight Forum 2nd-Gen Discussion
    Did you guys check out the CR-Z hybrid due out in 2010? They’re calling it the oxymoronic “sporty hybrid.” I think it’s a great-looking car. I wish I had waited longer to buy this over my Gen II Insight, but I’m content with what I have. I can’t imagine myself in a sports car anyway, but it...

    Honda Insight Forum 2nd-Gen Discussion
    Does the new Insight have a display for lifetime MPG? I was told by the dealer that you can customize features and displays but he didn't know if that one was available. I'd look in the manual but I don't get my new car for a couple of days yet!
